The BVK Series from TFO is an entry-level, well-rounded series with versatile performance across the board. The Spey rods have a fast action design, stylish composite cork grips, and loads of reserve power. These rods are ideal for any Spey application from Steelhead to Salmon on medium and larger rivers. The BVK Spey is responsive, crisp, and caters to anglers making touch-and-go casts. If you’re looking to add a new Spey rod to your arsenal, the BVK Spey is one of the best combinations of performance and affordability on the market.
Proprietary TiCr Blank Coating w/Fast-Action Design - TFO’s proprietary TiCr blank coating helps protect the rod from splintering when hit by heavy flies. The coating also increases rod strength and durability. A fast-action build makes this rod perfect for throwing difficult Spey casts in all conditions. Add a strong butt section for increased lifting power and a modern rod taper and this rod is one of the best Spey rods on the market at its price-point.
Tactical Series Stripping Guides - TFO’s proprietary Tactical Series stripping guides are made for Spey lines and large fish. These guides are durable and friction-minimizing for improved casting ability and effortless stripping power.
Tactical Series Snake Guides - Similarly, Tactical Series snake guides add to the big fish functionality of the BVK Spey. These guides are also lightweight to decrease overall rod weight.
Green Carbon Fiber Insert w/Double Uplocking Component - The BVK has an anodized aluminum reel seat with a carbon fiber insert that’s corrosion resistant and stands up to wear and weathering. The double uplocking component anchors large Spey reels. The BVK Spey also comes with a Spey grip made with composite cork for two-handed comfortability.
Cordura Rod Tube - The TFO BVK Spey comes in a cordura rod tube to protect the rod during travel and transportation. Most TFO rods don’t come with rod tubes, however, TFO has included a rod tube in some of their latest rod models.
TFO Warranty - As of July 2019, TFO rods purchased from an authorized dealer have a no-fault lifetime warranty for the life of the registered owner. TFO will always repair or replace (at no cost to the customer) any rod with faulty workmanship or manufacturer defects. If your rod breaks or is damaged from normal wear and tear, TFO charges $35 for repairs, processing, shipping, etc.
